You like it when the weather is warm and sunny. That means that you can lounge around the pool and laze all day. However, you don’t enjoy the sticky feeling you feel afterwards.
So how do you keep your skin feeling young without using too many products that actually leave you feeling uncomfortable? Most dermatologists say that it’s actually not the heat you should blame.
It’s the humidity that actually kills you when you stay out in the heat too long. Perspiration and natural oils don’t evaporate as quickly when the air is heavy on humidity.
Nonetheless, you still need to find ways to care for yourself or else you may end up looking older than you actually are.
Unless you really have dry skin, switch to a gel of foaming formula. This will do a better job in soaking up oil than a heavy cream-based cleanser.
To make sure your skin isn’t stripped of its essential moisture, try a product that has oil control and hydrators. Scrub up as well. When your skin is oilier, it is able to tolerate more exfoliation.
This, however, doesn’t mean that you have to use sandpaper on your face every single day in an effort to bust shine. Just try using a mild scrub at least once a week.
If you want to do more, never go beyond two times. While you want to make your face look like soft velvet, you should also think about how your skin needs a bit of oil in it as well.
When you go out into the sun, make sure you hydrate and protect your skin by drinking lots of water and slathering on sunscreen every so often. However, too many layers of lotion can make your face look greasy.
If even a thin coating of it feels to heavy for you, choose spray formulas instead. This way, you’ll get the same kind of protection and the only difference is that it is way lighter than creams.
Also make sure you establish a routine when it comes to skin care. In all honesty, good skin care is sure to be effective. Since this is the body’s biggest organ, it is also the most obvious indicator of health and beauty.
Besides defining your appearance, it also takes care of you in more ways than one. It protects your body from physical trauma and from exposure to harsh external elements such as microbes and the sun’s UV rays.
This means that the skin has specific needs to be in its best condition. For it to remain healthy and beautiful regardless of age, you need to understand that you need the proper diet, sufficient sleep, fresh air, adequate water intake, exercise, and most importantly, the right kind of routine.
Adhere to safe and proper ways of cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. When you expose your skin to unwanted elements and don’t do anything about it when you get home, you hasten cellular damage that eventually leads to early aging. Take care of what you have and do something about it before it’s too late.
